“Little haven.....”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

I absolutely loved this little place, and spent many an evening and afternoon here. All for an incredible cause, and the staff are passionate about what they serve and the reasons behind it. The food is absolutely delicious, the Lamb Kofta Tagine is a must. There are loads of refreshing local teas to choose from also. Not only that, but the price is more than reasonable! Resident henna artist and wonder-woman Fatima, creates both beautiful art and incredibly yummy and hearty food. It is as others said, a little haven, where you can sit in the sun overlooking the souks, whilst overhearing an english or Darija lesson going on below. Terry the tortoise is a joy to watch aswel. I LOOOOOVE! x

“Great value and a good cause”
Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

We had lunch here and it was a little haven from the souks! Lovely rooftop terrace (with a tortoise!) and yummy food.

The people are really friendly and helpful. I didnt get my henna done here but the designs were gorgeous.

“Excellent sandwiches”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Sandwiches were great; cooked to order and were very tasty. Good value sandwiches - sandwiches and drinks for 2 for 100 dirhams. The resident tortoise was wandering around the rooftop terrace as added entertainment.
